grandma's baking powder biscuits

grandma's baking powder biscuits
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 2/3 cup milk


  1. Preheat an oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
  2. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt into a bowl. Use a pastry cutter to chop vegetable shortening into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Whisk egg and milk together in a separate bowl and slowly add milk mixture to flour mixture, stirring as you pour, until dough is moistened and well-mixed. Drop dough by spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits have risen and are golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.
